Great Class for Parents with Young Children
The Richland County Family Resource Center is offering a parenting class for parents with young children, titled 1,2,3,4 Parents! This parenting class is designed for parents with children ages one to four years old, as well as professionals that work with this age group of children, such as grandparents or childcare providers.
Some of the topics included in this class are: ages and stages of children, different parenting styles, preventing behavioral problems, child-proofing your home, the parent/child bond, self-care for the caregiver, discipline and rules, choice and consequence, the “When-Then” rule, routines, and the power of encouragement. All of the sessions are taught by a trained facilitator, in an environment that helps encourage sharing personal experiences and learning from other parents.
Class is on one day on Saturday, May 17th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with a half hour break for lunch. The session will be held at the MSU Extension Building at 1499 N. Central Avenue in Sidney. The class is FREE, but child care will not be provided. Please no children. To sign up or if you have any other questions please contact Nicole Hackley, Family Resource Center Coordinator at 433-4097. The class is brought to you in part by the Montana Children’s Trust Fund.
